As its name implies, the Custom Post Type UI WordPress plugin provides a visual interface on which to add custom post types and all adjacent taxonomy to a WordPress installation.

Custom post types have been a mainstay in WordPress' core since its launch with version 3.0. During this time, developers, along with users have come not only to love, but to depend and require their themes to support them.

But implementing custom post types has not always been so easy, as it required lots of expertise in dealing with WordPress taxonomy and all related operations.

That's why, for a couple of WordPress versions, custom post types have not been accessible outside premium high-end themes and plugins.

Nevertheless, as time went by, so did the community's knowledge on how to properly work with them and a plugin like Custom Post Type UI was written to take the process of creating and editing this feature to a ridiculous level of simplicity.

The plugin is available on the WordPress plugin repository, making it easier to install via WP's built-in plugin installation tool. Development is carried out via GitHub.
